    Diluting Canned Coconut Milk?

    Primal Fuel
    Considering I've been going through my So Delicious coconut milk in a few days and it's just heavily diluted coconut milk, I picked p three cans of Native Forest full fat coconut milk. I tried diluting it - but it mostly tastes like water. What ratio do you use? Do you put it in a blender, or just mix?

    Thanks!

    I make this recipe: http://followingmynose.blogspot.com/...e-creamer.html

    I make a double batch and add one can of water, since I prefer it a little more pourable than the original.

    I've simplified it over time so I just hand whisk it lightly (takes almost no effort) and I sometimes use light olive oil instead of having to melt the coconut oil.

    Curious why you feel like you HAVE to dilute the canned stuff?

    Liz - Perfect! I will definitely try that. And it happens to be one of my "snacks" (a few sips a day), the full fat I love for cooking and for mixing with berries, but it's more like a cream than a milk.

    Supersellen - I will also try that. I'm sure one of the two will work perfect

    I think the So Delicious stuff mostly tastes like water (I tried the unsweetened variety once). Looks like liz gave you what you needed, I was just chiming in, heh.

    Kind of off-topic... but does the label on your Native Forest full fat milk now say 8g of sugars?

    Has the serving size changed? This topic came up in a thread about chocolate, but that is due to the difference on how carbs are labeled in the U.S. versus Europe (they don't count fiber toward the total). But coconut milk is fiber-free so that's not the case here.
